star this property answer text <p>The UK is fully committed to upholding the Joint Declaration of 1984 and has consistently highlighted the importance we attach to China abiding by its obligations. Though we have no plans to raise the Joint Declaration in the Security Council, the UK did raise the Sino-British treaty in our national ‘item 2’ statement at the 42nd session of the UN Human Rights Council in September. In the statement, we re-iterated our support for and call for all to respect the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ framework, including the rights and freedoms in the Joint Declaration. We also underlined the importance of upholding the right to peaceful assembly in the UK’s statement at the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly on 15th October.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We remain extremely concerned by the ongoing political challenges and human rights situation in Burundi, and its humanitarian consequences. An inclusive dialogue led by the region remains one of the only viable options to resolve the ongoing political crisis and we encourage the region to engage fully in this process. We repeatedly raise our concerns with the Government of Burundi and at the UN Human Rights Council and UN Security Council to keep the international spotlight focused on resolving the crisis. The UK wants genuine dialogue with Burundi once it has taken demonstrable steps to improve human rights, and to make progress towards stability.</p><p>We are concerned by the findings of the report of the Commission of Inquiry on Burundi that Burundi is at risk of atrocities. We continue to look to the UN and in particular the Commission of Inquiry, to assess whether the criteria as stipulated in the 1948 Convention on the prevention and Punishment of Genocide is at risk of being met. The UK International Ambassador for Human Rights, in her statement at the 42nd UN Human Rights Council on 17 September, welcomed the report of the Commission of Inquiry on Burundi and urged the Government of Burundi to fulfil its obligation to protect human rights and to hold perpetrators to account.</p>
